Not only did the PlayStation 4 outsell the Xbox One in its first weekend by about 100000 units in the UK, it completely obliterated the Wii U.

The numbers are even bleaker for Nintendo - its year of Wii U sales have now been trounced in a weekend by both next-gen machines. More people bought a PS4 and a copy of Knack over the weekend than bought a Wii U at any point over the past year and new release Super Mario 3D World.

If not even a Mario game can save a Nintendo console, you know something's up. People, Nintendo is in deep, deep trouble.

If you take obliteration literally, then yes, your smug attitude would be correct.

However, I expect our readers to be smarter than that, and realise full well it's a perfectly accurate figure of speech when the PS4 sells more consoles in two days than the Wii U has sold in a year. If that's not obliteration, I don't know what is.
